BACKGROUND: Obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASI) is a rare but serious outcome of vaginal birth. Based on concerns about the increasing number of women who commence childbearing later than previous generation, this study aimed at investigating age-related risk of OASI in women of different parity. METHODS: A population-based register study including 959,559 live singleton vaginal births recorded in the Swedish Medical Birth Register 1999 to 2011. In each parity group risks of OASI at age 25-29 years, 30-34 years, and ≥35 years compared with age < 25 years were investigated by logistic regression analyses, adjusted for year of birth, education, region of birth, smoking, Body Mass Index, infant birthweight and fetal presentation; and in parous women, history of OASI and cesarean section...

Waldenströms macroglobulinemia (WM) is a B-cell malignancy characterized by high level of monoclonal immunoglobulin M (IgM) paraprotein in blood serum and associated with the bone marrow infiltration by malignant cells with lymphoplasmacytic differentiation. WM remains incurable advances in therapy. Most of WM cases are associated with a somatic point mutation L265P in MYD88. Significantly higher risk of progression from the IgM monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (IgM MGUS) to WM for patients with mutated MYD88 gene suggests that this mutation is an early oncogenic event and plays a central role in development of malignant clones...

Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) is a complex disease characterized by apparent morphological heterogeneity within the malignant clonal cells representing a continuum of small lymphocytes, plasmacytoid lymphocytes, and plasma cells. At the molecular level, the neoplastic B-cell derived clone has undergone somatic hypermutation, but not isotype switching, and retains the capability of plasmacytic differentiation. Although by classical definition, WM is formed by monoclonal expansion, long-lived clonal B lymphocytes are of heterogeneous origin...

Babesiosis is a severe disease in cattle worldwide. In Europe, the main causative agent of bovine babesiosis is Babesia divergens. In some areas, this species is reported to have declined or even disappeared, and its etiological role overtaken by other piroplasmid species. Moreover, co-infection with other tick-transmitted pathogens can be expected to complicate diagnosis in cattle. Hence, molecular identification of the causative agent of babesiosis should be a priority. Therefore, samples from 71 domestic cattle, 39 with clinical signs of babesiosis and 32 without, from southern Sweden were screened for Babesia spp...

Transformation of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) to diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) occurs in up to 10% of patients and is associated with an adverse outcome. Here we performed the first whole-exome sequencing study of WM patients who evolved to DLBCL and report the genetic alterations that may drive this process. Our results demonstrate that transformation depends on the frequency and specificity of acquired variants, rather than on the duration of its evolution. We did not find a common pattern of mutations at diagnosis or transformation; however, there were certain abnormalities that were present in a high proportion of clonal tumor cells and conserved during this transition, suggesting that they have a key role as early drivers...

Hematology analyzers sometimes generate spurious results. A patient had EDTA-induced pseudothrombocytosis and platelet agglutination in citrate blood samples. This case verifies that addition of 1% paraformaldehyde to the citrate tubes can prevent platelet clumping. Further, it illustrates the advantages of having access to more than one platelet count method.

The use of novel B cell receptor signaling inhibitors results in high response rates and long progression-free survival in patients with indolent B cell malignancies, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma and Waldenstroms macroglobulinemia. Ibrutinib, the first-in-class inhibitor or Bruton's tyrosine kinase, and idelalisib, the first-in-class inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase δ have recently been approved for several indolent B cell malignancies. These drugs especially foresee in previously unmet needs for patients with relapsed or refractory disease, high-risk cytogenetic or molecular abnormalities or with comorbidities...

Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a lymphoproliferative lymphoma that is characterized by monoclonal immunoglobulin M (IgM) protein and bone marrow infiltration. Its incidence is rare and rarer still is its ability to transform to a B-cell lymphoma, particularly the aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which bodes a poor prognosis. When transformation includes mutations of MYC, BCL-2 and/or BCL-6, it is known as a 'double hit' or 'triple hit' lymphoma respectively. This paper presents a rare case of WM with mutations positive for MYC and BCL2, making it a case of double hit B-cell lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma with plasmatic differentiation without morphological transformation to aggressive histology like DLBCL...

Histological transformation (HT) to diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a rare and poorly reported complication of Waldenström macroglobulinaemia (WM). We performed a retrospective study of 77 WM patients with biopsy-proven transformation to DLBCL. The median time from WM diagnosis to HT was 4·6 years and 16 patients (21%) had never been treated for WM. At HT, extranodal sites were observed in 91% of patients with a rather high incidence of central nervous system, cutaneous or testicular involvement...

We report the case of a 68-year-old male with right eye vision loss secondary to a compressive optic neuropathy from Waldenstrom macroglobulinaemia relapse in both cavernous sinuses. Central nervous system involvement is extremely uncommon in lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma. Known as Bing-Neel syndrome, this has not been previously reported to present simultaneously in bilateral cavernous sinuses. We discuss the pathophysiology, diagnostic and neuroradiological features of Bing-Neel syndrome. In this case, there was marked clinical and radiological response to chemotherapy...

Paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) is a peculiar variant of pemphigus with pathognomonic clinical, histological, and immunological features. It is typically associated with hematologic malignancies (84%), such as non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) (most common), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Castleman disease, thymoma, Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, and monoclonal gammopathy, as well as non-hematological neoplasms, such as epithelial carcinomas, mesenchymal sarcomas, and malignant melanoma.

The incidence of B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders (B-CLPDs) is significantly lower in China than that in western countries. There have been studies involving small cohorts with conflicting results regarding the spectrum of B-CLPDs in China, and the types and immunophenotyping of B-CLPDs in China remain largely unexplored. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 653 cases of B-CLPDs seen in our centre from 2011 to 2015. Four-colour flow cytometry was used to determine the expression of each immunological marker, and the diagnostic values of the immunological markers were also investigated...
